Hippocrates said, ‘let food be your medicine and medicine be your food’.
Food brings us comfort, connection and care. At State Of Liberty, we believe eating should be joyful and celebratory. You won’t find dieting and calorie counting here, instead our focus is enjoyment and ease.
Cultivating a holistic perspective requires a basic, fundamental understanding that we are what we eat. Nutrition, health and wellbeing are intrinsically linked. When we’re conscious of our food choices and aware of our personal needs, natural rhythms, cycles and habits, we are choosing the most responsible and liberating way of eating and living. Being mindful whilst food shopping, cooking and eating can greatly enhance this everyday experience.
The six wellbeing elements included on our online retreats all complement each other, so you can be confident the food and drink we suggest will support all the other wellbeing practices. With our help, you’ll be able to enjoy the shopping, cooking and eating process from start to finish as you naturally nourish your body in the comfort of your own home.
Cooking mindfully and intuitively is a skill developed over time, so we’ll be sharing simple techniques to help prepare your holistic kitchen and establish good habits. We love a well-stocked store cupboard, so we’ll share our list of basic, essential ingredients for quick and easy cooking.
Our food and drink recipes have been carefully created to be easily integrated into everyday life. We’ll focus on foods that naturally support your body, nourish your cells and balance your hormones. We’ll show you how to prepare quick, easy meals that are healthy, delicious, affordable, sustainable and deeply satisfying.
Eating less refined, processed and potentially stressful foods and replacing them with fresh, organic, seasonal, nutritious wholefoods can be very beneficial for your body. Eating seasonally and locally is not only good for you, your family and friends, but the planet too.
The kitchen is also a pharmacy. It’s full of simple everyday foods, herbs and spices that have healing properties to prevent or cure many ailments, as well as numerous natural ingredients that can be used for making beauty products.
